how come that this is in Florence and it looks quite Greek Orthodox / Byzantine??
I found such great findings in Sicily, but Sicily has a completely different history / story.

Yes, you will find quite a lot of Byzantine looking mosaics in Italy, e.g. in Venice (Basilica), Florence, Rome, etc. In other christian countries like Belgium you will (almost) none. I assume (I am not an historian) that this is a result of the intense contacts that remained between Italy and Greece after the split of the west and east roman empire. Although some of these contacts were not always friendly (Venice vs Byzantium).
